Season ticket scanners will be part of an extensive programme of infrastructure improvements at Norwich City during the summer.

The new system governing stadium access for supporters will be in operation at Carrow Road for the 2013/14 season to improve matchday access.

Work is also already underway on extending the Jarrold Stand TV gantries from the existing three structures hanging from the roof to one continuous gantry extending for most of the length of the stand.

This will result in 30 more supporters' seats in the area which has been previously used to house broadcast media at the rear of the Jarrold Stand.

The club will be implementing goal-line technology at Carrow Road to be employed next season and improvements will also be made to the pitch.
